Copper sheeting for producing energy on a solar panel?

Build Your solar Panel

Why should I burn the copper sheeting for producing energy on a solar panel?

As you know, on a solar panel you have to used burned copper sheeting so you can produce energy, but…
What does the copper have to produce energy?
And why does it have to be burned?

    its not really the copper, its the oxide that forms on the copper that has the photoelectric properties. Its the oxide that absorbs photons and converts them into electricity.

    Solar panels collect solar radiation (heat) from the sun and convert it to electricity. A solar panel comprises silicon cells that produce electricity when interacting with sunlight. These solar cells utilize a large-area p-n junction diode, which when exposed to sunlight, converts energy from sunlight into usable electrical energy. This conversion is termed as Photovoltaic Effect. Energy is generated from photons, that strike the surface of the solar panel, allowing electrons to be knocked out of their orbits and released. Electric fields in the solar cells pull these free electrons in a multi-directional current, from which metal conductors in the solar cell generate electricity.
